Being able to transform my shower into a spa-like experience is my idea of absolute bliss, so one can only imagine my elation upon hearing the words “aromatherapy shower kit.”

Immediately upon hearing those few words, pictures of a completely relaxed, zen-like me began dancing in my head. Needless to say, I could hardly wait to get my hands on this magical product that would allow me to turn my boring old shower time into an invigorating spa time.

This magical product that I speak of is the Essio Aromatherapy Shower Kit.  The kit includes a shower arm and essential oil pods and is exceptionally easy to use…honesty it took me less an a minute to attach the arm to my shower and insert the essential oil pod.

Lurk Perfume Oil Review

Lurk RSW005 Perfume Oil Review #BeautySince cooler temps are upon us, many of you might be thinking about switching out your summer fragrances over to something that suits you better during the cooler /colder months.  I’ve started playing around with a few options for a fall and winter fragrance, and while I have not yet settled on one, there have been a few that I’ve placed in my “maybe” pile.

One of those is Lurk’s RSW005 Perfume Oil.  I love perfume oils because they tend to last longer on my skin and to me the scent always seems softer.  Lurk Perfume Oils are hand blended and poured using  pure essential oils in a base of organic jojoba. There is no water or alcohol used in their perfume oil concentrates nor do they use  chemical preservatives, stabilizers or additives. I love the fact that the Lurk Perfume Oils are hand blended and created in SOHO NYC. Read more
